Volunteers Victims for Mass Casualty Scenarios March 25, 2019 11:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Columbus Global Academy (the old Brookhaven High school) 4077 Karl Road, Columbus, Ohio

Victims will need to be able to show up to be moulaged by 11:00 a.m. You will need to be able to stay until 3:30 p.m.

Victims should wear clothing that can be torn and stained, as the fake blood and make up stains, and some injuries will tear clothing. You may bring other clothing to change into after the drill, but keep in mind that if you do not wash the moulage off entirely after the drill, you may stain the clothes you change into, as well.

You will be moulaged and have time to eat and visit with other victims while you get your instructions. The live scenarios start at 1:00 p.m. and will run for 30 minutes, repeating 4 times until 3:00 p.m. You may have to have your moulage touched up in between drills. At 3:00 p.m. you will be released. You may wash up and change at that time.

Some people will receive heavy moulage (lots of injury), some will receive light moulage, some will be uninjured but have acting roles (you’ll still probably end up touching moulage so you can get stained).

Deadline is March 12th, as long as we still need victims.  To volunteer, e-mail Michelle Treaster at with your name and how many are volunteering.
